Bonjour, welcome to La Boîte à soleil your Francophone child care provider in Niagara.
La Boîte à soleil is a cooperative non-profit child care centre which means our parents can get involved in the care services for our children. We opened our first centre in 1982 in Welland and now have 7 centres in Welland, Niagara Falls, St. Catharines and Port Colborne. We invite you to come visit and play at any one of our centres Monday to Friday from 7:00 am to 5:45 pm.
As you walk through the doors of our centres you will feel the warm, safe and secure environment that our children thrive in every day. They are greeted with smiling faces, open arms and big warm hugs. They play, create, think, learn and share in their own way and at their own pace.
Infants, toddlers, preschoolers and school agers are encouraged to explore and choose what’s of interest to them each day. Our francophone registered early childhood educators observe them playing and create activities based on what’s important to them.
When it comes to eating, everyone is running to the table to see what’s on today’s menu. All meals and snacks are healthy and homemade.
You will often hear music playing and children singing the most popular French songs. Through songs and activities, children learn the French language.
At La Boîte à soleil, every child develops at their own pace and in their own unique way with the support and encouragement of compassionate, caring educators.
La Boîte à soleil, a quality francophone child care where everyone thrives, learns and grows.
